If MF is free artist he should paint all painting in similar fashion but if you see his painting you can see partiality.
If you saw his paintings about his family and religion he always respect his family and disrespect Indian God and India as a country

He always got inspired to paint India God Mother India, but he never painted nude his own mother or daughter.

All forms of Art which practice the stream of antagonizing any particular creed of human race be it religion, caste, geography should be detested in its extreme scale. MFH has practiced the most obnoxious forms of culture while owning up a onerous role in defining the culture of this era. He has immensly njoyed the bountiful approach professed by Hindu culture to exercise restrain towards any moves attempting to smear its practice & thriving on this principle. In order to ensure the coming generations are able to approach the culture in its right perspective required cleansing of flith slinged by acts of MFH in the guise of Art forms needs to be exercised.

@1) The above remark is personal in nature.
—-I do not know why, but if I hurt your sentiments, I beg your forgiveness!

My intention was a genuine curiosity to find out “Why must I not call your “wisdom” as an ulterior motive that I sensed?”

2.Your statement of forgiveness is extended flawed application of imagination.
—Who is to judge the wisdom but does it not strike you that wisdom is rare. Still most people (you included) in seem to be wise over MFH issue, almost all at this blog. Hmmmm!!!

You are not just anti-MFH over the issue at hand, you are anti-Muslim—-plain and simple. You vindicate me by saying “MF Hussain is a repetitive offender who won’t apply the same standards to portray Islam.” If he gets Muhammad naked (PBUH), will you forgive him? Wisdom ra ra are your sweetening agents will not sell hate.

@Also, stick to topic…”
–As you would have appreciated, I am talking relevant issue here and you vindicate me as I mentioned.

@Be original… Lifting some statements which have no relevance here doesn’t serve purpose.
—-Duh! you are saying as if you made a discovery. It is not called lifting the statements when it is clear. I can rewrite. Would it make a difference. What a waste of time!

@4) MF Hussain can also be called as mentally sick because he does so deliberately in order to gain cheap fame and money.”
—Psychiatrist and rehabilitation is the prescription for “mentally sick”, not prison. Are not mentally sick the ones to be forgiven and rehabilitated.

By various means, it has been amply shown that Hindus are angry at MFH at his stupidity for taking certain religion for granted. Their reasons are genuine. But there are Hindu radicals like you who call for blood not because he stripped Sita (and others) who is sacred, but it is fact that the the act has been done by MFH who is a Muslim painter.

Here is wisdom (this is original): The best way for someone to show the power, in certain cases (not all), is to press person’s windpipe to a point of death but not kill him so that he can live to appreciate that his stupid act meant difference between life and death and he has been forgiven to live life and nor repeat the same mistake. To me, this is much better show of power.

1) The above remark is personal in nature

2) Your statement of forgiveness is extended flawed application of imagination. In Mahabahrat Vidur gives the quoted forgiveness lecture to Dhritrashtr who was in power and was oriented towards giving peace to a disturbed king who was unable to prioritize between love for son/ love for justice.

3) MF Hussain is a repetitive offender who won’t apply the same standards to portray Islam

4) MF Hussain can also be called as mentally sick because he does so deliberately in order to gain cheap fame and money

Also, stick to topic… Be original… Lifting some statements which have no relevance here doesn’t serve purpose.

–What you call wisdom is your paranoia.

No need of wisdom, even common sense tells that 95yrd old MF Hussain will not end you “in tatters, rags” unless you think that MF Hussain is an old man representing someone wicked, young and strong force which is conspiring to end you and thus must not be forgiven.

The paranoia of ending up makes forgiveness hard to exercise. I wonder with this anything can be forgiven.

Forgiveness is a virtue and virtue needs to be exercised with wisdom. Those who apply virtue without wisdom end in tatters, rags and are in no time, found on other side, asking, not giving.

@There has been a lot of fake outrage over the nude paintings. Most of the paintings were done in the early 70’s and Indians had no problems then.”
–Fair point. Today even MFH will not paint the same paintings in nude that he did in 1970–if he has common sense.

@Now right wing Hindu organizations have hijacked the issue.”
—- Yes they have hijacked issue but it will be unfair to call all those who complain against MFH belonging to wing Hindu organizations.

@Historically India never had issues with nudity. Look at statues and paintings in our temples.”
—Qn is were these Gods/Goddesses etc pained nude by MFH existed as nude sculpture. If not he has weak case. One cannot ignore he belongs to a different religion too. Nude sculptures are different (there is none of Sita if I know it well) and I will be surprised if right wing Hindu organizations would have been able to make a big deal out of a painting by MFH of someone already existing nude in Khajuraho.

@We should also not ignore the fact that majority of Indians who are poor are walking around naked or semi-naked because they cannot afford decent clothes. That is what we should be outraged about.”
–This is a separate issue.

But I am fine with a sincere apology from the old man. After all he has hurt the sentiments of people.

Forgiveness—-what happened to this word from Hinduism? why MFH should not be forgiven by those who believe in Hinduism?

Historically India never had issues with nudity. Look at statues and paintings in our temples. We should also not ignore the fact that majority of Indians who are poor are walking around naked or semi-naked because they cannot afford decent clothes. That is what we should be outraged about. That should violate the so-called Indian “sentiment”. Not a painting that was drawn 40 years ago.
